Walls, windows and doors blocking screen space

Recommended Posts

I often find myself unable to see what's going on on the screen, because of doors, windows or walls showing up as black rectangles, rather than being see-through. This causes a lot of problems with hidden zombies and is in general very annoying.

Could you try toggling the "New Roof Hiding" setting and see if that changes anything?

In this screenshot, the new roof hiding is toggled on. I've tried toggling it off, but this still happens a lot. Seems to happen when I do no face the offending walls, and when facing them, the problem disappears.

 

Should also be said that shelves and a lot of other furniture do not become transparent at all, which sometimes causes trouble with vision, especially inside stores.

That's odd. Never experienced this before. Some stuff like food shelves don't become transparent, as well as bookshelves. That's normal and may be fixed in the new cutaway system. Walls should always be stencilled out, even if they're black like this.

 

Could you try some of these things if you haven't already?
In no particular order:

 

Verify integrity of Steam's PZ files: Right click PZ > Properties > Local Files > Verify Integrity.

Update your drivers.
Starting a new save (no need to delete the old one) but just to see if there's some compatibility issue.

Try messing around with some other settings in-game to see if anything changes. You'll probably need to restart PZ a few times to see if any of them work.

Try disabling any mods and start a new save (won't delete your save).

I don't have any mods installed. I do play on the IWBUMS-branch, but this problem happened before that and happens now again as I have reverted back to the standard branch.

This only happens to doors and windows, not walls, as far as I can tell (seems like I was mistaken in my original post). I happen when I can't see through the doors or windows because of line of sight.

I've tried messing with a bunch of settings, nothing seems to change it. My drivers are all up to date. I tried new games, issues persist. My friend experienced the same issues.
